Was it a chopper following them? I don't know if I saw a shadow or not... I don't think there are civilian helicopters that can go that fast. It may have been a fixed wing airplane.

I would have liked to see it pass another train doing 100, or maybe another 500+kph train passing in the opposite direction.
